GNU Moe 1.14-rc1 is ready for testing here

The sha256sum is:
be84957585a0c088942bc705776fb2dcf4894d13364d682d01bf904f20a01122 moe-1.14-rc1.tar.lz

Please, test it and report any bugs you find.

GNU moe is a console text editor for ISO-8859 and ASCII character encodings. It has a modeless, user-friendly interface, online help, multiple windows, global search/replace (on all buffers at once), block operations, automatic indentation, word wrapping, file name completion, directory browser, duplicate removal from prompt histories, delimiter matching, text conversion from/to UTF-8, romanization, etc. The file size, line length, number of buffers, and undo/redo capability are only limited by the amount of memory available and the size of the address space of your machine.

Moe respects your work. By default it won't automatically add, change, or remove a single byte in your files. Moe is a WYTIWYG (what you type is what you get) editor.

Moe can easily edit thousands of files at the same time.

The homepage is at http://www.gnu.org/software/moe/moe.html

Changes in this version:

* Block marking now follows cursor only in the buffer handle where marking was started, even when switching to another buffer handle for the same buffer.

  * Moe no longer processes backslash escapes in file names.

* Search now provides the option '(D)elete' equivalent to 'replace with nothing'.

* 'Read block' now reports "File is empty" or "File not found" instead of "File not found or empty".

  * 'Reformat paragraphs' now turns off highlighting if 'auto unmark' is on.

  * The new search sequence '\=<ch>' (equivalence class) has been added.

* Icase (ignore case) now also ignores the case of characters in sets and equivalence classes.

  * Executable files (scripts) are now loaded with 'auto indent' on.

* The command 'b' (scroll backwards leaving 1 line of context) has been added to the basic less emulation.

* The scroll keys now work without the need of pressing the Alt key in read-only buffers.

* The cursor is now allowed to remain at top or left positions when scrolling.

* '<' is now shown in the status line to indicate that there are text columns at the left of the window.

* 'Control-O K' (capitalize block) and the special replace sequence '\c' now capitalize only the first letter of each whitespace-separated word, not letters separated by punctuation (like an apostrophe).

* Recursive load now ignores file names with extensions ".avi", ".docx", ".mp3", ".mp4", ".mpg", and man pages ".[0-9]".

  * The UTF-8 decoder now converts some box drawing characters.

  * The variable MAKEINFO has been added to configure and Makefile.in.
